Roughly translated, Kazoza N’Ikawa means “the future is coffee.” This co-op in the Kayanza district of Burundi is backing up that sentiment with the hard work needed to make it a reality. Sorting the coffee is intensive, from the initial picking to the drying tables to the mill, and the reward for that dedication is a wonderful cup rich in sweetness, highly aromatic and full of the lively fruit flavors we’ve come to expect from the best coffees in Burundi. For a country still recovering from civil war, coffee has come to truly represent the future in many ways. Lots like this one continue to build that future. We’ll raise our mugs to that.
